No problem, unless you want to run it in full screen or graphics mode. WIN7
does not fully support DOS programs in full screen mode. However, there are
a couple of ways around that. You can run it in a virtual XP machine. I
have WIN7 Pro, and it is a free download.
However, there is a simpler method. There is a program called DOSBox which
is intended to run really old legacy games. It works perfectly with ITrack,
and makes a much smaller footprint on your machine.
Even though I have the virtual XP machine, I prefer to use the DOSbox
version. With a little obvious tweaking of the configuration, it will come
up as before.
